We just love Canberra.

Just in case you don’t already know, here are 5 reasons we love Canberra, with a countdown!

5. It’s beautiful.
Seriously, it is really beautiful. Where else do leaves turn red and the Christmas ty gets covered in blankets of mystical fog? Contemporary architecture, beautiful sunsets and amazing skies.

4. Our People
Pretty sure that the people of Canberra are the friendliest and most welcoming Australians in the entire country, definitely the most polite. But the best thing about them is that they love getting out and doing stuff. It barely matter what is on, a food or music festival, a ballon ride or game if rugby, Canberrans will get into it!

3. Balloons
Need I say more? Not really but I will. Where else can you balloons from all over all together in one spot, the Canberra Balloon Spectacular that’s where!Take a balloon ride or have some breakfast and watch them up close getting ready for flight. Definitely an experience you do not want to miss.

2. Family and Lifestyle
There is really nowhere as good for families as Canberra! We have tried to keep Canberra a bit of a secret but when it keeps getting voted most liveable city in the world, it’s hard to keep under wraps. With a large population and relatively small area, Canberra’s thriving economy goes a long way. We have the best roads, schools and parks. The city is humming, the food scene is off the charts and we are clearly over represented on the sports grounds around the country. We really do have it all, but please don’t tell anyone.

1. Food
Canberra has become the number 1 food destination in the country with the food scene exploding with gifted chefs and a natural abundance of spectacular produce. With some of the best wineries and breweries in the world alongside our amazing restaurant and food festivals, it is no surprise.
